4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gerry Dog!!! Pours a dark brown/black with a thick tan head. Aroma has nice notes of dark chocolate and firm roastiness. Flavor follows suit and adds some nice earthy hops and a subtle sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish dries and lingers a bit with some roasty notes. A nice drinkable stout that I could drink all night!

On tap. Black as night pour. Thin head. Subtle smoked chocolate and dark malt aroma. Earthy hops in the background. The body is a little less than medium. The taste is mildly sweet but there is also a kind of astringency to it. Lingering smoked finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Bottle at Paulís Blind Impy Stout Tasting, 1/5/13, Rating #2750 and #50 of 2013
Aroma: The nose has roasted malts, sweet malts, chocolate, and some earthy notes
Appearance: This one pours a brownish color with a small beige head
Flavor: The flavor is similar to the nose, with sweet and roasted malts and a little alcohol
Palate: The body is medium, it has a decent feel, and a soft-to-average carbonation
I had no idea this was only 6.5%, this has to be the lightest stout I drank that day. I thought this was a solid one overall, but it wasnít a standout for me. Decent stuff.
